Aliko Dangote Says He’s Keen on Buying Arsenal Football Club


Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote says he is still interested in buying one of English premier league football teams, Arsenal. In an interview he did with Bloomberg while traveling in a private jet from Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to Lagos on May 1, Dangote said he’ll love to buy the club when the price is right …
